Hey deyz, could you make a small edit to your post and bump it over that piece of crap spam that sits on top of the pile? Thanks.

Will try to check out the show later.

Elbow, my computer skills are minimal but I must thank you for apparently helping me get over my aversion to Dancing In The Street.
If only you could do the same with Minglewood.

Hi Deyz,

I see you stick pretty consistently with the early 70's, as I have in the past as well, but I would like to give you a recommendation for the early 80's in order to try and cure your New Minglewood Blues!

This is an outdoor show and the AUD sounds MUCH better than the SBD. There is a matrix recording available on etree which is a fantastic blend of the two available sources.

The show starts with a Playin' > Shakedown > Minglewood that I hope you will enjoy :)

Oh well, can't say I didn't try.

Thanks I'll check it out when I get the time. I actually enjoyed a Minglewood from a show in the 80's on one of the rare times i've been there. Can't remember the show but I really did enjoy the slide playing.

Right on, brother. Weir actually plays some quite tasty slide guitar in this version. Its always pleasantly surprising to find a rendition where Bob isn't playing slide guitar past the 20th fret - because (GASP), his slidle playing can...

... IT CAN ACTUALLY SOUND GOOD...

oh bobby bobby

and JG rips solo after solo on this one too :)

oh and here's a swell write up to go along with the show:

Persuaded my little girl to let me listen to Playin' > Shakedown > Minglewood. Don't get much time on the computer at the weekend. It sounds great. I think I'll always be stuck in the early '70's but thanks for your kindness. And I will listen to the show in it's entirety first chance I get.
Peace

I'm glad you enjoyed :)

I know what you mean about the early 70's... there is such a purity to the music.

Hope you and your daughter had a little dance party to those tunes... :)

I play music for my little sister when we hang out and she enjoys and it and likes to dance but she gets bored of it pretty fast - would rather be playing monsters and princesses.

All you need to do is click on your original post and in the upper left hand corner of the box is a small "edit" button. Click that and it will allow you to change your original post. Make a small change and by doing so to your original one the site will think it is a new post and place it on the top of the list.

Your welcome on the Dancin'

Just wait five minutes and SDH will be modifying his post again. He just can't leave them alone...

So how are you, Larry?

Excellent point although today I am not one to point fingers at edits.

Fine Robert, thank you for asking. Been a bit busier these days at work. Some of it mind-numbing paperwork but much of it has been becoming re-invigorated by my research. The brain seems to be engaged a bit more and I don't feel like I am going through the motions. This was what I was hoping for when I decided to relocate.

How about you? Elbow deep in some new and interesting topic so you can enlighten the kids I hope. I am beginning to worry that you have covered so much material you might run out.

I would love to be deep in some new topic, believe me. One of the most dispiriting aspects of this type of publishing is how often you find yourself rehashing stuff you did years ago. A couple of ideas in the pipeline though that I hope might come to something.

Children's non-fiction publishing is in a real state of flux right now - a combination of the recession and a shift to online publishing has unsettled a lot of people. What happens a lot is that publishers save money by outsourcing to packagers. Recently I found myself in the bizarre position of sending my stuff to a freelance editor who had been commissioned to handle a series on behalf of a packager, who had been employed by another packager, who had been employed by the publisher. Everybody is squeezing costs right down the line - and guess who's at the end of that line?

Ok, rant over. So, what are you researching at the moment? Is it something I might vaguely understand?

I'll go into details in another time and place. It is still primarily cell biology research with a particular interest in how cells can make life or death decisions when faced with the stress. This can be induced by being an abnormal cell such as a cancer cell that is being treated with therapeutics. However the people I get to interact with and the ability to use the vast wealth of information provided by all of the gene expression profiling studies has made it really fun to sit at the computer and determine if there are hypotheses to be tested or if the ones we are already testing have clinical relevance. (btw I was pleased to see a picture of a DNA microarray in my 14 year old son's high school biology book).

Speaking of kids, I think I might have mentioned this before. While I do understand your frustration, you are at the frontline in the battles we wage to assure that scientific research and what it brings to society can continue. I know that you cover many other topics however what I mean by this is that the only way to keep the fight going is to inspire young people to go into science. I am not sure that the school systems do a great job of this, although not because of the teachers, mostly because of the lack of funding to do it properly. So any other places where kids can be inspired is a great help. Moreover I think kids want to be inspired. I would go and teach 1 day/year at my kids' elementary school and talk about what cells are and how we study them. Basically used pictures from the lab and a variety of micrographs that we had from different scopes. The kids would go nuts!! You could just see lightbulbs popping over their heads. By the time you teach at the college level, the light bulbs are few and far between and since most of my teaching is now at the graduate level the room usually stays pretty dim. Your books are hitting the right target audience. I know that doesn't pay the bills, but it should give a certain level of satisfaction.

Larry. I'm only going to respond briefly here because, as you rightly say, this belongs in another time and place, but I just wanted to let you know now how very much I appreciate and am grateful for what you say. I would definitely like to talk with you further about these matters off-forum. I'll say this here just so casual forum browsers know - you are a damned good guy.

just because I'm in that kind of mood, I'm going to say that you are very far from being a horrible person yourself and I'm glad you're back here regularly. I'm straying way too deep into Barney the Fucking Purple Dinosaur territory here I know. So flame away, oh masked avenger. You know I deserve it...

Nah, I'm going to leave the mask and green tights to WT. He carries it off much more convincingly than I ever could.

I've just been baking bread, took it out of the oven while the 9-20-70 Caution I recommended to Grendel was playing. It's a very grounding thing to do, quite primeval really. Just wondered if Madame Hollow would agree.

How can I say no to a tasty 70 Caution? I can't, I say. I can't.
